Name Your Price for the Humble Dynamite Comics Bundle

Humble-Dynamite-Bundle[1]Dynamite Comics is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month with a bang.  They've partnered with Humble Bundle to bring you a special deal. Act fast, and you can get up to 130 issues for a low low price. Humble Bundle

As with all deals at Humble Bundle, you can set your own price (even as low as a penny). You can name your price and buy Project Superpowers Vol. 1, Vampirella Masters Vol. 1 & 2, Sherlock Holmes Vol. 1: The Trial of Sherlock Holmes, Chaos! #1, Vampirella vs. Fluffy, My Little Phony: A Brony Adventure and Cryptozoic Man #1-4 plus the entire collections of Amanda Hocking's The Hollowland and The Mocking Dead.

But if you beat the average price (currently $11.30) you will also get Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: War Cry #1, Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure #1-3, Pathfinder: Dark Waters Rising Vol. 1, Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues Vol. 1, Vampirella Masters Vol. 4, The Shadow: Midnight in Moscow #1, Miss Fury Vol. 1 and Kevin Smith's The Green Hornet Vol. 1 & 2 along with the complete George R. R. Martin's Wild Cards and Jungle Girl Omnibus.

And if you pay more than $15 or more and you will qualify for the bonus titles. In addition to the titles listed above, you will also receive all 36 issues of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time Vol. 1 and The Dynamite Art of Alex Ross.

eBook bundles like this are a great way to experiment and find new authors to read, but as with any experiment it doesn't always work out. I have had mixed luck myself; between the Doctor Who graphic novel bundle (bad artwork) and uninteresting titles in the mixed SF/F bundle, I have been discarding a fair number of ebooks after only reading a few pages. (And then there is the bundle I seem to have misplaced entirely, but that isn't relevant here.)

To be fair, when I started buying ebook bundles I pretty much expected that I would not like most of the titles. Back when I used to buy game bundles, I usually only found 1 or 2 games out of a bundle of 6 that I thought were worth playing.

I prefer to read than to play computer games, so naturally I have been having better luck with ebooks.

Have you bought any ebook bundles? Who has had the best ones?

  1. Good to see Humble Books Bundle getting some love on ebook blogs. This will be my fifth ebook bundle I have bought from them. I think I am only missing one or two bundles hehe…

    The last comics bundles I snagged, was the Humble Image Comics Bundle and Humble Doctor Who Comics Bundle, and the formats i chose to download, amounts to 1.26GB of .CBZ and 3.3GB of .PDF respectively. That is a good amount of high-def content, and for 25 bucks, what I usually spend, is WELL within the reasonable range.

    However I am more of an ebook collector/archivist, and mostly read non-fiction.

  2. I’m a serial Humble Bundle buyer, after getting some fantastic games from them. I also bought this Comics Bundle, just so I could quickly get up-to-speed on the state of graphic novels nowadays. (Hitches pants up to just below my chest.)

    But, bang for buck and for indie support, when it comes to books, I go Story Bundle. I don’t buy every bundle, but the quality has been getting better. I’m happy.

  3. Hmmm… Story Bundle? I did not know about this. Good looking I will definitely start purchasing from here. Love me some eBooks.

  4. I’ve mainly bought Humble Bundles. Maybe I should switch over to the other service; I might have better luck.
